Not only in and out, but also on, about, above, before, after, down, and many m ore – a total of 61 prepositions are examined in this book. Though written primarily for students of English as a Second Language, The Ins and Outs of Prepositions is a lso useful in remedial English courses on high school and college freshman levels. U nlike most languages – which usually have only a few prepositions to serve many diff erent communication needs – English as dozens of them, and almost none follows any clear, consistent set of rules. This book offers practical guidelines for corre ct usage, and provides hundreds of examples that incorporate all of the prepositions into familiar contexts.
